Unveiling Corvus: The New BTD 6 Hero

Meet Corvus, the Spirit Walker, the new BTD 6 hero! He will be in Update 40. The team worked hard to balance and fix bugs. Corvus comes with a lovable spirit companion who helps him attack Bloons.

He uses Mana from Bloons to perform powerful attacks from his spellbook. Corvus can also debuff a single Bloon with his Haunt, which removes regrow and purple properties and enables increased energy damage. When destroyed, Haunted targets explode, dealing intense area damage.

Corvus, the new BTD 6 hero, is most powerful when close to Bloons for Haunting and Mana generation. Corvus gains Spirit Walk at Level 7 to allow repositioning on the map. He can be unlocked for 7000 Monkey Money, making him the most complicated hero in the game. The high price reflects his additional development effort and strategic value. Geraldo will also have a higher unlock price, but this won't be changed until Update 41. Players have until then to unlock him at the current rate during the Holiday season.

The past few towers, like Geraldo, Beast Handler, Magus & now Corvus, were rather complex. However, Ninja Kiwi doesn't plan to make all future heroes complicated. They'll have a good mix of simple and complex heroes. The next hero (to be released midway next year) will have a 'less is more' design. It'll be unique but more straightforward to understand and unlock with just 5000 Monkey Money.
